"This book gives readers an unprecedented insight into the common focus of all natural health approaches-the body's inner intelligence. It presents a comprehensive framework for understanding how nature's self-organizing intelligence emerges and how it can be harnessed for greater health and well-being. The book shows how both modern science and the ancient Vedic science of India point ot wholeness as an esential quality of existence. Based on this understanding, the text provides a model for moving beyond treatment approaches that focus primarily on symptoms of disease. In this model, the seed of disease is sown at the level where individual consciousness, mind and physiology emerge from "undifferentiated wholeness". If the self-organizaing intelligence of the body becomes disconnected from its source of wholeness, the disease process begins. The book goes on to introduce a wide range of therapeutic measures offered by the Maharishi vedic approach to health, to bring about healing with deep and lasting results. These therapies provide a unique way to understand and prevent chronic diseases and to transform health care as we know it."
